The LAT has a post up about the writer of the new Buffy The Vampire Slayer film reboot, Whit Anderson. The film is set to proceed without BTVS creator Joss Whedon, and Anderson calls on feminism to explain why she loves the character: “I didn’t really watch much television at all, but I always watched Read More

(More fried chicken jokes!) Season 3 of the Boondocks ended on Sunday, and I haven’t heard much chatter round the interwebs about it this week. There’s good reason for that: it wasn’t very good. I’ve had mixed feelings about Aaron McGruder since my former blog-mate saw him give a talk at our Alma Mater in Read More

Our constant readers know there are few things we here at PostBourgie look forward to more than a new season of Mad Men, so one can imagine my sigh of contentment on Sunday night sinking once more into that world of sharp suits, cigarette smoke and intrigue.

If you missed – intentionally or not – ABC News’ Nightline special “Face-Off: Why Can’t a Successful Black Woman Find a Man?” consider yourself lucky. Because I can’t get those 30 minutes of my life back. The title of the program itself should have been a clue to stay away. If that wasn’t enough, the Read More

There are few people  who would disagree that Martin is one of the greatest sitcoms of all time.  Another squarely solid favorite is Will Smith‘s The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. So, it would make sense that someone would figure a show from Martin Lawrence and starring a Fresh Prince alum to have at least Read More

As usual there are so many things to get into, but I just have to say GO BETTY!!! She was gone for a while, but the the girl is definitely back  and I like it.  It was strange territory to be in starting from last week – I had gotten so used to Betty’s snivelling Read More

Today in my office, a pimp and his prostitute came looking for advice on where to score some blow and advice on how to fill out their W-2s. When I told them what they could do, they accused me of encouraging them to engage in public masturbation. I hope Beck and Co. don’t get hold Read More

Believe it or not, I’ve been known to be a jackass. Ask anyone who had the misfortune of knowing me in college. Or a couple years ago. I really hope President Obama isn’t asked about it anytime soon: Anyway, lots of things have happened since our last Monday roundup. Here’s a few of them, a Read More

[from feministdonut, cross-posted from The Feminist Texican.] Over the past month or so, I’ve been seeing all kinds of articles on what a feminist show this is.  Much as I lovelovelove the show (”Mad Men” and “Project Runway” are pretty much the only times I turn on the TV each week), every time I read Read More

I apologize for the delay. The dog ate my homework. I had a death in the family. I got caught in traffic. And then my car broke down. But, as President Obama told us last week, “no excuses”: Without further delay, your PostBourgie-approved reading material from the weekend: As a native Houstonian, I feel the Read More
